Why Leicester City must revive interest in signing Jarrod Bowen

The Leicester Mercury reports that Jarrod Bowen was a target for the Foxes in the summer.

The Hull City winger scored 22 goals from 46 Championship games last season but could not take his side into the Premier League.

The youngster has started this season well too with three goals and an assist from just six Championship games, but the Tigers are struggling in the league.

The Express adds that Newcastle and Southampton are interested in a January move for Bowen, however, Leicester were keen on bidding £15m for the 22-year-old in May (h/t Leicester Mercury).

The Foxes have one of the most exciting and young teams in the Premier League but Bowen should be on their transfer wish-list again.

An exciting winger that will grow under Rodgers

Brendan Rodgers has worked his magic on several young players and seems to be enjoying his time at Leicester.

The former Swansea manager is seeing the best of James Maddison and has also promoted youngsters such as Harvey Barnes, Ben Chilwell and Hamza Choudhury this season into first-teamers.

Leicester don’t always play with natural wide men, especially after the signing of Ayoze Perez, but Bowen will provide them additional width.

The 22-year-old seems to be lethal in front of goal and will provide Rodgers with a different option to try out.

Demarai Gray has been inconsistent despite getting several chances in the first-team while Marc Albrighton isn’t as effective as he used to be during his Aston Villa days.

Leicester have done well with several talents from the Championship such as Maddison, and Rodgers is the perfect manager to develop Bowen further.

Hull might find it difficult to make it to the Premier League and the report claims that they could sell their star for £20million.

That isn’t a crazy value that a club like Leicester cannot afford, and the Foxes are one of the bestrun clubs at the moment.


Rodgers is building something special at the King Power and the Foxes have some quality youngsters in the team.

Bowen has loads of potential and would be great for Leicester over the years.
